AUTHORIZATION TO APPROVE EXPENDITURE OF FUNDS FOR THE PURCHASE OF RAW WATER FROM SALT RIVER VALLEY WATER USERS’ ASSOCIATION
Presented by: Craig Johnson, P.E., Director, Water Services
Purpose and Recommended Action
This is a request for City Council to approve expenditure authority by the City Manager for the purchase of raw water from Salt River Valley Water Users’ Association (SRP) in an amount not to exceed $675,000 for Fiscal Year 2019-20.
The Water Services Department functions to provide safe and reliable water and wastewater services for City of Glendale residents and businesses. The water production process begins by procuring raw, untreated water to produce safe, clean drinking water for public use.
The City of Glendale’s water supply portfolio includes the surface water from Central Arizona Project (CAP) from water received via the Colorado River, and SRP water originating in the Salt and Verde Rivers watershed. Raw, or untreated, water is purchased under Council-approved agreements with CAP and SRP and is treated to produce safe high-quality drinking water.
The City has entered into long-term inter-governmental agreements to supply raw water for treatment at the Cholla and Oasis Water Treatment Plants and distribution to the city water retail customers. Rates and fees are determined by the Salt River Project Board of Directors.
